Taylor Waste joins recycling forces with Verde Earthworks

Verde Earthworks owner Kate Blevins has announced a collaboration with Chris Taylor, owner of Taylor Waste.

Taylor Waste began its newly acquired recycling service from Verde Earthworks Dec. 1. Taylor Waste is handling the residential curbside recycling customers throughout Sedona, Village of Oak Creek, Verde Village, Cottonwood, Cornville and Camp Verde with the exception of Oak Creek Canyon and Rimrock/Lake Montezuma areas.

Taylor Waste will accept all recyclables: paper (boxes, newspaper, magazines, junk mail & shredded paper), plastics (jugs/tubs) & cans, but no glass.

Glass, unfortunately, will contaminate all other materials when compacted. Also, glass is a safety hazard to employees and it damages the equipment. Therefore, Verde Earthworks is in the process of creating "The Glass Challenge." Meaning the company is working on generating a better use for the glass bottle; i.e., aggregating it in concrete floors and counter tops, creating drinking glasses, novelty functional art, etc...

Taylor Waste is now providing a 95-gallon recycle bin on wheels, with lids embossed with recycling information. Your recycling will be picked up in a separate truck twice a month on the same day as your trash service. The goal is to reduce truck traffic in your neighborhood resulting in less fuel emissions, noise and carbon footprint. Even if you use a different waste hauler, Taylor Waste will still service your recycle needs. All materials will be delivered to Verde Earthworks where it will be processed (sorted and baled) and then shipped to manufactures to be made into new products.

Verde Earthworks will continue to provide commercial recycle services to all businesses in the Sedona-Verde Valley area. This includes collecting glass, cardboard, paper, cans, plastics and green debris from business establishments, commercial complexes, professional buildings as well as multi-family apartments/townhomes and resorts.

The mission of Verde Earthworks and Taylor Waste is to create good stable jobs for the local community, stimulate the region's economy and divert dollars and finite natural resources from the landfill. VEW will also begin offering document shredding services to all of the Sedona and Verde Valley businesses and residences starting in January 2013.
